You can find a LOT of previous similar questions in the Home > TV Repair link, under Browse Projects - at lower left. Generally, you are in the size range where the answer is maybe, especially if a "smart" TV where the screen does not represent the vast bulk of the cost of the unit. But generally, VERY rough ballpark, expect a screen replacement to run at leat 1/3-1/2 the cost of that size TV, and possibly more.


Since you know exactly (or at least primarily- possibly other damage inside, especially if it was broken when powered up) the nature of the problem, call a couple of TV Repair vendors (your Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed repair shops for this type of work) and - with make, model, serial number at hand - ask for an estimate. They should be able to give you a pretty close estimate on the screen - of course till they get into it would not know if anything else was damaged or not.


Know in advance what the price of an equivalent new units is so you don't puot too much money into repairing an older unit, and bear in mind a new unit will also give you typically an additional year (from purchase date) of warranty coverage, though of course that does not cover an elbow through the screen. Depending on whether primary brand or off-brand, and features of the TV, under $400 to around $500 something range for normal LED/LCD ones, $500-800 something for 4K resolution models, and $700-2000 range for 4K Smart TV's seems to be the approximate range for "normal" TV's today at box stores. Looks like about $600-1200 for Sharps in that size.


Depending on how expensive this TV was and your deductible, possible your loss may be partly covered by homeowner's / renter's insurance - bear that in mind if applicable.
